Singapore's Apple Store to to be fully operated on Solar energy
Last week Apple's job postings confirmed the arrival of Southeast Asia's first Apple Store in Singapore which is slated to open in late 2016. The 15,000 sq ft Apple Store will be located at Knightsbridge mall in Orchard Road and will also be 100% powered by renewable energy according to statement released yesterday.
Apple has striked a deal with local developer Sunseap Group which will get the proper funding to complete their solar projects and thus provide clean renewable energy powered by the sunny weather for all of it's operations in Singapore. With a combination of rooftop solar panels placed on public and Apple owned facilities, the array of solar panels across Singapore is capable of generating up to 50MW of solar energy which is equivalent of powering 9,000 homes.
This deal with Sunseap Group also makes Apple the very first company to be operating fully through renewable energy and continues Apple's roadmap to becoming an environmental friendly company. Maybe Apple's next step is to open an Apple Store in Kuala Lumpur? Apple probably has to start looking for a Solar Energy company.
